Author: Rainbow Rowell
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Publisher: Dutton Adult
When Lincoln gets a job at a newspaper in IT security, he doesn’t realize his job would mostly consist of reading his coworkers’ emails. He also doesn’t realize that when he starts reading the dialogue of two frequent offenders of the no personal email policy, he would start to fall for one of them. Told through Lincoln, and the emails of Jennifer and Beth, Attachments is the story of three young people discovering what they want in life, friendship, and love.
If Rainbow Rowell wrote all the books, I would read a whole lot more often. Man, can she tell a story. And her characters are all perfection. I love them all, even the fratboy-esque Justin. And setting this book in 1999 added just the right amout of quaintness (remember the Y2K frenzy?).
Although this took me a little while to finish, I really did devour this book at every opportunity. If this were the old days, it’s one I would have read in a weekend. This is her first novel, and I think it might be my favorite Rainbow Rowell book so far, but it’s so hard to decide because they’re all so wonderful.
So, that’s my review – a whole bunch of booklove and gushing. I may have forgotton how to write real reviews.
Have you read this one yet? Have you read any of her other books? Anyone want to send me an advanced copy of Landline?
